Designed by golf professional Bill Clifford, work started on the present course in 1973 and in May 1974 the first nine holes were opened, with the second nine holes opened in October 1975.
Originally two old houses owned by the Frankston Council, were transported from their original site near Frankston Station, joined together and were the Pro-shop and Manager's residence at the course for more than 25 years.
Older residents well remember Dot and Jim Spencer who managed the Pro-shop at the old course and then at Centenary park for more than two years, before Pat and Frank Doolan took over for the next 18 years.
Since the mid 1980s, the City of Frankston has invested thousands on continual upgrading of the course and appointed a special sub-committee to recommend works.A ten year master plan in 1986 saw many improvements including a reticulation system, drainage works, dams, and upgrading and resewing of fairways
The course is a challenging 6018m par72 for the men and 5268m par73 for the ladies, with excellent fairways, many of them newly planted with Santa Ana couch grass.
Those who remember the course from some years ago would be greatly impressed with all the drainage work, new pathways, and grass planting programs that have really improved the course to a very high standard.
